This theater was originally developed by Jake Slosburg, Sr., an American real estate developer who migrated to Israel in the 1930s. It was the first building in all of Israel with an elevator.

This article contains some additional history about the Allenby Cinema and includes a picture of the building when the cinema was a going concern and one of an architect’s drawing of the proposed residential conversion: View link.

If you scroll down to the collection of photos after the one at the top of this webpage and below the introductory text, there is a recent photo of the building (No. 10 – the numbers appear at the top of the photos when you mouse over them) showing clearly that the building has seen better days: View link.
